From: Merri Ellen :)
What's my depression story? I remember not so long ago sitting on my couch unable to form any words with my mouth. My husband asked me questions and I could only muster up enough strength to look back at him with a look of "why don't you just kill me now?" I couldn't speak. I was so emotionally exhausted and mentally burnt out from suffering from depression and on the verge of suicide. I could not sleep and would get up in the middle of the night to stare out the window in darkness. I was completely lost.
That seems like ages ago back in 2001!
That year, I had a bizarre (Divine!) experience that impacted me so deeply giving me a new drive to search out the truth! I began to research answers for curing depression with this new drive and ambition. I was out of the woods in a matter of weeks and feeling completely free in a couple months without any medication! Each week I got better and better! A faithful friend who had come over to my house to check in on me and clean my bathroom when I was at the lowest, could not believe the transformation in me after I applied the research.
We were having coffee and discovered how many people we loved were suffering with depression too. My friend encouraged me to share my story. So, in 2003, I put this website together with the help of SoloBuildIt!. I had NO idea it would reach 120 countries averaging 15,000 - 20,000 visitors per month.
Today, I get emails from all over the world thanking me for the research. I love hearing how my readers apply the research with their doctor's consent and find new joy and freedom from depression too!
I have now come out of my pit and these days look out of my window excited about life. When my husband talks to me, I am excited to answer! My passion is for life. My joy is found in living and in especially helping others find joy out of depression!
(In fact, my friends comment on my hearty laugh all the time!)

There is hope! You are worth it!
The idea for this website- on sharing with you my successful depression recovery story- began after having coffee with a friend and months after recovering. She had been a loyal friend giving me strength throughout my journey back to joy. She asked me,
The more we talked, the more we realized that many of our friends and family members were going through the same thing and NEEDED to hear my depression story and what HELPED ME! (Depression is more common than we initially realize!) Perhaps we could help people around the world!
I found and interviewed other former depression sufferers to learn their depression story. I've heard from business professionals, doctors, moms, and dads who had similar successful stories and I’ve collected this info in this website FOR YOU!
This site with my story has been created for you with the help of every day people each with their own depression story and each with a happy ending. They are moms, college students, teens, business professionals...
I initially experimented with the research for my own depression desperate to beat it!
You can take my story and research – and learn how to defeat your depression. (I hope that what you’ll find here will save you hundreds of dollars in unnecessary treatment.)
Here we share with you what we've learned to prevent it from ever happening again.
